Region II reported this morning that McGuire, Oconee and Catawba have found 1-131 in dairy samples.

Apparently, Oconee is required to report this to the state, so there wifllbe a 50.72 Event Notice report ý(should see it tomorrow), reporting the results. I don’t know why McGuire and Catawba don’t need to report to the state, but the region did say that Oconee was different and did need to report it. Region also said that they don’t know about any broadleaf vegetable results.

Wanted to give you a head’s up on this, so you’re not caught short when the 50.72 shows up. I’m going to try and get some more information from region 2, but with what I’ve got, I don’t intend to put anything in the screening summary because the details are just too sketchy. I’ll let you know if I get more information.
